Do you have a legal copy of your game? Sometimes software makers will include a "call home" feature that will check with their website if you have a valid serial number. The software shuts down if you have an unauthorized version.
Another problem may be a bad memory chip. I had this problem...
That drive is toast. Spend the $49 and get a new 40 gig drive. It'll be much faster and you won't get any errors.
I'm assuming that your RAM is in good working order. Bad RAM can cause the OS installation to stop. Don't know about the boot order thing though.
One of my favorite pastimes is to string telemarketers along like that. I've had some of them threaten me, start crying or hang up in frustration. I really miss the challenge since the "Do Not Call" list went into effect.
As a father with two kids in college in California, may I put my 2 cents in here?
1: $20-30,000 of debt is about average for one year of schooling these days if you go through the University of California (UC) system. That includes schools like UCLA, UC Berkeley, etc. Prices are substantially...

HP never developed a driver for XP, but I was wondering if any other scanner driver would work.
o0RaidR0o, Thanks for the information. You are correct in that I am using Win XP Pro as my OS. Norton does cause some slowdown of the system, but I've always found several of the tools to be useful. I don't install everything, just Utilities, AV and Cleansweep. You're right about scandisk...
Enyo, I scanned my system with TDS-3 and it found the keylogger. It was disguised as a .tmp file, of all things. Once I was rid of that, I was able to get Norton AV to run and it found 3 other viruses that were promptly quarantined.
